  1. I agree with most everything in this article except one item – Binnington (rhymes with Winnington – not Billington) is not “eating up a large part of salary cap.” He has a $4.4m AAV.
    Just think – Joel Edmundson’s salary is $3.1m which is $1.3m less than Binnington. Binnington is the primary reason the Blues have a cup. Edmundson was a arbitration case where he won – and at the same time won a ticket OUT of St. Louis.
    Binnington is CRITICAL to the Blues – Edmundson …. not.
    If you look behind Binnington, you’ll find someone eating up salary – Jake Allen. He was captain of the crease when the Blues were in 31st place on 1/1/2019. When he took a seat on the bench, this team starting their history making run.
